Paper Pretties Challenge: Non-traditional Christmas Colors!

Stamps: Paper Pretties sentiments 'For your Kindness' (inside). Cardstock: Memory Box beach collection, textured white, Night of Navy. Ink: Night of Navy. Accessories: snowflake brad, Martha Stewart 'Branch' punch.

To celebrate Paper Pretties' very first Wednesday challenge, Jackie chose a 'Christmas in July' theme with a spin: use non-traditional Christmas colors. Can you believe this paper is actually a beach pack? Other prints include flip-flops, but these patterns paired with a snowflake brad and pine boughs end up with a holiday flair that I still tolerate when it's 110 heat index outside!

Be sure to play along for your chance to win awesome goodies. Then stay tuned for upcoming exciting changes (and more prize opportunities) at the Pretties' Boutique!
